Open all hours at LGC Standards? webshop

Date:04 September 2012

Featuring over 30,000 products, it represents the most comprehensive source of online reference materials and can be searched quickly and easily using the intuitive search engine.

The Center for Nuclear Technologies at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), Roskilde, has taken advantage of this online facility to order certified melting point standards to ensure correct calibration of its equipment. Dr Sorin Aburel, Head of Production at DTU?s Hevesy Laboratory, explained: ?We are a radiochemical and radiopharmaceutical facility involved in the development of new diagnostic and therapeutic radiopharmaceuticals. The raw materials that are used for radiopharmaceutical production must undergo identification tests according to Ph. Eur., including melting point determination, and correct calibration of our instruments is essential. We use the webshop to buy certified melting point standards, and really appreciate the convenience of being able to order at any time, not just in office hours. It is easy to access and placing an order is simple; you just pick the things you need, transfer to the webshop and with one click you have everything you require.
